Design of the Game
Stellar Jackpots Chilli Gold x2 is set in dusty Mexico with a Latino character trying to tempt you onto his reels with the promise of red hot chillies. Look around the reels and you will be able to see cacti, flowers, canyons and a sunny blue sky. Top of the screen is where the jackpots sit proud as punch and as you toggle your bets, these values will change. The paylines are shown on a wooden slab to the left and right of the reels. The screen has been designed to drag you into the game with very little options on display to distract you from the gameplay.
Symbols that can be found on the reels are; red chilli, gold chilli, Mexican, donkey, parrot, maracas, guitar and standard card values 9, 10, J, Q, K and A.
There are 5 reels and 40 different paylines to Stellar Jackpots Chilli Gold x2 slot machine. Bets can be placed from 0.96 up to 120.00 a turn – the more you bet, the higher those jackpots will be. If you were to bet minimum stakes, the progressive jackpots would be: Mini – 32.00; Minor – 160.00; Major – 4,000.
But switch to maximum stakes of 120.00 a spin and these will become: Mini – 800.00; Minor – 4,000; Major – 100,000.
Slot Game Bonus Features
There’s a handful of exciting features that are offered with this slot machine and they are:
- Wild: the red chilli is your wild and it will substitute for all other symbols. This symbol is also regarded as a scatter. There is an additional wild symbol and it’s the wild gold chilli – this will substitute for all other symbols bar the red chilli to help create wins on the reels.
- Free spins: you can get your hands on between 3 and 21 free spins with at least 6 stacked red chilli wilds on your reels. Free spins can be re-triggered and all substituted wins will be doubled.
- Gamble feature: if you trigger a win during the base game but you wish you’d won more, you can play the 50/50 game of chance to try and double your cash. Guess the colour of the suit of cards by clicking the corresponding button to the lower of the reels to try and win more. Correct guesses are rewarded with wins whilst incorrect guesses will confiscate all your money – including the initial line win.
- Progressive jackpots: just like Stellar Jackpots with More Monkeys slot game, you can trigger the bonus round randomly. You can progress through 7 challenging levels where you simply shoot icons on the screen. Match three of the same symbol and you will win that corresponding progressive jackpot.
Don’t panic if you don’t consider yourself to be lucky, because there’s decent base game wins to be had too – so you don’t only have to trigger the progressive jackpots in this slot game, because by betting maximum stakes, you could return 1,000 for five of a kind of the Mexican man symbols. The free spins with stacked wild gold chillies is where the big bucks come from, so it’s no wonder it takes a while to trigger in this medium to high variance slot game.
The return to player (RTP) percentage is 96.32% which is rather generous.
